Signal Hill, Cape Town Central

4.6
Drive to Signal Hill for panoramic views of Cape Town, including Table Mountain and Robben Island. You can reach the hilltop on a short, picturesque drive from town, and once there, have a picnic, hike up to the adjacent Lion's Head Hill, or take a romantic evening walk for a chance to capture some unforgettable sunset images. Wandering the plateau, you'll come across a number of "kramats," sacred tombs dedicated to various Muslim missionaries. Signal Hill is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Cape Town Edition.

  • We wondered up to signal hill for a sunset picnic, the view is wonderful and its normally not too busy.  more »
  • The views of table mountain is nice, but need not be. Interesting were the launches of the tandem paragliding, who have their Eldorado.
